Saturday: New Palestine 78, Mooresville 50:
The Dragons put on a 3-point shooting clinic and equaled their biggest victory of the season.

Michael Morris scored 32 points -- giving him 63 for the weekend and 92 for the last three games.
He hit eight 3-pointers, including two in the first quarter. He then added four in a 17-3 second-quarter run that allowed NP to build a 42-32 halftime lead. Morris had 22 points by halftime, including 14 in the second quarter.

His eight triples tied a school record, and eclipsed Ryan Curry's season high of seven set in the Franklin Central game on Dec. 15.

Morris was 12-of-13 from the floor, 8-of-9 from 3-point range and added five rebounds and two assists.

Curry had a big night of his own, hitting five 3s for 15 points. Solomon Haynes (2) and Keegan Lytle (1) hit the other 3-pointers for the Dragons.

Brandon Jonas added eight points and four assists. Solomon Haynes had six points and five assists. Connor Roach led NP with seven rebounds and two blocks. Morris added six boards and Seth Cox five.

Brandon Jonas had eight points for NP, scoring six in a third-quarter spurt that allowed NP to pull away from a 10-point halftime lead. NP led 59-38 after three, outscoring the Pioneers 17-6 in the period and punctuating it with a Morris 3 for his 29th point. 

NP hit 30-of-43 from the floor -- a 70 percent clip -- and was 73 percent (16-of-22) from 3-point range.

J.T. Hurt led two Pioneers in double figures with 17 points. Lane Weaver had 11 points.

NP (13-4) next plays Thursday at home against Franklin. Mooresville fell to 4-10 on the season.

Friday: New Palestine 66, Shelbyville 52: Michael Morris scored 26 of his game-high 31 points in the second half to carry the Dragons to a Hoosier Heritage Conference victory.

NP is now 12-4 on the season and 6-0 in HHC play. The Dragons' remaining conference game is Feb. 15 against Mt. Vernon, which is also unbeaten in HHC play. NP is seeking its third HHC title and first since 2003.

Morris hit 11-of-19 from the floor and a perfect 6-of-6 from the line. He had all but 10 of NP's second-half points.

Seth Cox added 11 points for NP on 4-of-4 from the floor and 3-of-4 from the line. He had nine in the first half. Solomon Haynes and Brandon Jonas scored eight points each -- Jonas hitting 8-of-12 from the foul stripe.

Haynes added four assists and two steals. Samson Haynes had two assists and four rebounds. Jonas and Connor Roach also had four boards each to lead the Dragons. Jonas had three steals.

NP was 21-of-41 from the field and 19-of-25 from the free-throw line. Shelby was 19-of-47 from the floor and 8-of-17 from the stripe.

Ethan Runnebohm had 16 points for Shelbyville and Reilly Reinbold had 12 points and four assists. Adam Eads added nine. Jake Laker's seven rebounds led all players.

This one was close for much of the first three quarters, until Morris got hot. He scored 20 consecutive Dragon points at one point in the second half to help NP pull away.

NP led 21-18 after a quarter, 30-28 at the half and 45-42 after three, but used a 21-4 run to break the game open in the fourth.
